Piano Trios

Alyn Shipton with requests, featuring the piano trios of Bill Evans and Phineas Newborn. Plus Horace Silver, Stan Kenton's band, Lee Konitz, Art Pepper and Firehouse Five Plus Two.

Piano trios with Bill Evans and Phineas Newborn are featured in this week's selection of listeners' requests presented by Alyn Shipton.

Evans is heard in the breathtakingly beautiful Waltz For Debby recorded at the Village Vanguard in 1961 with bassist Scott LaFaro in one of his final recordings before being killed in a motor accident. Newborn is Sneakin' Around with drummer Roy Haynes and bassist Paul Chambers.

And also in this week's programme: another recollection of the late Horace Silver; the mighty roar of Stan Kenton's band; and the contrasting alto saxophones of Lee Konitz and Art Pepper. Traditional jazz is in the riotous hands of the Firehouse Five Plus Two, who were Disney animators by day, and fearless jazz musicians after dark...
